Invisalign® aligners are an excellent option if you would prefer a brace that is not only virtually invisible but that can also be removed for eating and cleaning. This involves wearing a series of clear aligners for at least 20 hours per day and for 7-10 days per aligner. The number of aligners depends on the severity of the case.
Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed for you by your orthodontist.
A virtual 3D treatment plan (ClinCheck© treatment plan) shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. From the results of the ClinCheck© treatment plan, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you.
